Ryo Ishikawa Shines at Pebble in Bubblegum Pink

Of my five unconventional eclectic and quirky US Open picks it was Ryo Ishikawa who fared best in round one... and on so many levels. His game was superlative and his outfit was over-the-top... in a good way.

The implausibly young Japanese champion, playing in his first ever US Open, finished just one back and wore and outfit took pink to a whole new level. Of course there were the inevitable comparisons to a famous anti-nausea medication but judging (as we do) from the reaction on Twitter, Ryo's rose colored fashion statement was well received.

Including this decidedly approving tweet from no less an authority on pink than @ThePCreamer!
